I remember when I was in elementary school and this same thing happened to me in the cafeteria. I was standing at a table, holding my tray and searching for an open spot, and the big kid on the the end turned to me and said, "We have carefully considered your request to sit here, and we regret that we will not be able to scooch down and make room at this time."

Big bullies. ;)
